Two people were killed by a tiger in the Pilibhit Tiger Reserve, officials said on Monday.

Kanhai (25), Sonu (25) and Monu were attacked by the big cat on the Ghungrai-Diuria road in the forest on Sunday, Pilibhit Tiger Reserve Deputy Director Naveen Khandelwal said.

While Monu managed to climb a tree and save himself, the other two were killed on the spot, he said.

The bodies of the dead have been sent for post-mortem examination, Mr Khandelwal said, adding that assistance will be given to their families.

The official also said that instructions have been issued to install 20 cameras in the area, and a barrier has been put up at the entrance point of the jungle.

Vehicle movement is forbidden on the road from sunset to sunrise owing to man-animal conflict, he said.

In order to ensure that such an incident does not take place again, entry of two-wheelers in the forest has been stopped, Mr Khandelwal added.
